Magnifying perfect lens and superlens design by coordinate transformation
The coordinate transformation technique is applied to the design of perfect lenses and superlenses. In particular, anisotropic metamaterials that magnify two-dimensional planar images beyond the diffraction limit are designed by the use of oblate spheroidal coordinates. The oblate spheroidal perfect lens or superlens can naturally be used in reverse for lithography of planar subwavelength patterns. © 2008 The American Physical Society.
